SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs A sideways step on my older Gigabyte motherboard ... 11/08/2014

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: The card was easy to install in my standard-sized case. I didn't have to change any settings in drive boot order in the BIOS, it just booted immediately with my 256 GB Samsung 840 EVO. Windows 7 x64 automatically found and installed the drivers.

Cons: On my Gigabyte EP43T-UD3L, the printed manual says the motherboard is PCIE 2.0 compliant, but the online manual says the PCIE slots are all 1x. Double check between the manual and the web site before you buy. :) That having been said, it's still a slight speed bump in regards to throughput, but routing data through the PCI bus seems to introduce a bit of lag. It seems like a wash to me. Still, this is a decent, inexpensive card.

Other Thoughts: I gave this four stars even thought it didn't quite work out the way I expected it to. This is a great value card, and I can still use it to expand the number of SATA ports on my system (I was running out.) Four stars from me!

ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Solid IPS monitor that won't bankrupt you. 05/19/2014

This review is from: ASUS VS24AH-P Black 24" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 80,000,000:1

Pros: 1920 x 1200, 16:10 ratio; IPS screen with wide color gamut, 178 degree viewing angles; HDMI, D-Sub, and DVI-D connectors; white well-balanced whites, excellent color reproduction; decent grey to grey response times; standard 100 mm x 100 mm VESA pop-outs in back (use a paper clip); no stuck or dead pixels.

Cons: No play in height of stand; no rotation (mount this puppy with the VESA mount); very bright backlight settings out of box; if you want to watch 16:9 movies without the letterbox effect, move on to a more traditional format monitor; difficulty displaying solid black (some greying/bleed through around the corners.)

Other Thoughts: I do IT work for a radio station. I got one of these for one of my online people who works with Photoshop. Color accuracy is good out of the box. I liked it so much, I got one for home.

It's a decent monitor for digital photography hobbyists, small publishing firms, and anyone needing decent color reproduction with the ability to display two open 8.5" by 11" pages side by side.

The price is a very nice plus.

On Networks DSG008-199NAS Unmanaged 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Simple, small, fanless unmanaged gigabit switch. 04/16/2014

This review is from: On Networks DSG008-199NAS Unmanaged 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Pros: I got this switch for $15.99 a few months back to use in my home as my central distribution switch. It is small, about the size of a medium length paperback book (or three stacked 7" phablets). It is fanless and has no hot spots anywhere on its case. It has eight gigabit auto-sensing ports. I get decent transfer rates, and can share network resources (HD video, files, Netflix) among my home devices with no lag.

Cons: None by my experience.
